Hazard Chase is delighted to announce that the French conductor Sylvain Cambreling has joined its roster for general management.

Sylvain Cambreling is Principal Conductor of the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo and General Music Director of Staatsoper Stuttgart.

Alongside conducting in many of the world’s leading opera houses Cambreling balances his opera work with his positions at the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra and  Klangforum Wien, as well as guest appearances with the world’s leading orchestras. Previously, as Chief Conductor of the SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg, and Principal Guest Conductor of Klangforum Wien, he has offered ample proof of his gifts for imaginative programme-planning and persuasive championship of contemporary music.

Upcoming engagements include the premier of Tristan and Isolde at the Stattsoper Stuttgart, the Salzburg Festival with Klangforum Wien and at the Ruhrtriennale in Bochum with Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra.

“Sylvain Cambreling… is an interpreter of considerable distinction, and in Berlioz’s dramatic symphony he pulls together all the strands of this notoriously hybrid work with great dramatic flair.”
